Glow Worm




My first summer in Pennsylvania, I spent many enjoyable evenings (until the skeeters came out) sipping my Rolling Rock and watching the glow worms nightly light their tiny lanterns gay, their tiny lanterns gay, and twinkle brightly. Well, this experience, and hearing Carlos Hagen's program that morphed from early legitimate renderings of "The Glow Worm" up to Red Ingle's definitive masterpiece, have given me an undying love for this touching tune. So, before the Mills Brothers jazzed it up for the 50's, even before Spike Jones recast it for the crazy market, we have 1910's "Glow Worm" by the Vienna Quartet, and 1925's early electrical version "The Glow Worm" by Victor Salon Orchestra.
